The Chinese Zodiac is thousands of years old and easily predates its Western counterpart. Even today, millions of believers across the globe consult the Chinese Zodiac regularly.
While Western Astrology is based upon the months of the year, Chinese Astrology is based upon a twelve year lunar cycle. Your sign is determined by the year in which you were born (to be accurate you must use a Chinese calendar). Each sign and those born under it, are represented by one of twelve animals, and are ascribed a set of attributes the Chinese believe comprise the nature of each particular animal.
Legend has it the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac were chosen by Buddha. When Buddha was near death he invited all the animals to visit him. Only 12 came: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. For visiting him, Buddha honored each by using them to represent the 12 phases of the Zodiac. 
One of the most interesting uses of the Chinese Zodiac is exploring the compatibility of signs. That is, which duos will make good lovers? friends? partners? Use the tools below to discover how different signs match, to find your sign, or to learn more about any of the 12 signs.

The worlds of Astrology were divided.

In the past, you could either look at yourself through Chinese Astrology - which is very “inward,” practical, useful for everyday decisions and based on the Lunar cycles…

Or you could look at yourself through Western Astrology - which is more “outward” and mystical, useful for spiritual guidance, and based on the Solar cycles…

But now, that’s all changed.

You now have the first opportunity ever to see both the Western and the Eastern description of the attributes of your sign, which will be combined into one WHOLE picture of your aspect.
